This work is based on a figure I spotted when I was doing a show in Los Angeles a little while ago. The person depicted was sitting at a table in FRED 62 a great café/diner in Los Feliz. It was
a hot summer afternoon and he was reading a newspaper while drinking coffee and eating pancakes – as one does at FRED 62. He looked like he may have been a businessman dressed down and relaxing on a day off work. This scene reminded me of what might have been a shot in an avantgarde movie by an underground filmmaker.
